About the role
Community corrections involves the management and supervision of offenders in the community. Offenders must report regularly to their community corrections officer and may have to participate in unpaid community work and rehabilitation programs. Community work programs are focused on offenders participating in meaningful work that contributes back to their local communities and encourages offender rehabilitation.
Community work supervisors (field officers) transport up to 11 offenders to local community work sites and supervise their community work activities, ensuring strict compliance to OHS requirements, as well as providing training to offenders to develop new skills.
“I love the feeling of satisfaction at the end of a day’s work. I enjoy the challenge of working with offenders and assisting them with their transition back into the community. You need excellent interpersonal and communication skills. You can’t be judgmental. You will have the support of an outstanding team. Community Corrections, it’s a great career!” – Douglas, Field Officer
